Elixir of the Month: Aquila Allergy Relief

Don’t let allergies cloud your springtime! Trust the Eagle to carry away your itchy eyes, stuffy nose, & sinus headaches.

Like all products in our line of seasonal syrups, Aquila Elixir was formulated to work on both energetic and physiological levels. We chose the energies of the east, the wind, and the eagle to guide our spring blend, which addresses those horrible pollen allergies that plague so many of us in springtime. Nettle leaf’s quercetin content, anti-inflammatory action, and immuno-modulating capabilities suppress the histamine response that causes allergy symptoms. Sunny calendula flower moves lymph and soothes itchy and inflamed tissues. Eyebright, true to its name, clears itchy, watery eyes. Rosemary and sage clear stuffiness and sharpen minds clouded by congestion. Butterbur is a traditional remedy for headaches, including the sinus headaches that often accompany allergies. A few drops of lemon and basil essential oils add flavor and strengthen the blend’s power to clear, calm, and sharpen. Last but not least, a trio of Bach flower essences work energetically to address emotional distress that may accompany allergy symptoms.

Ingredients: Nettle Leaf, Calendula Flower, Eyebright Leaf, Rosemary Leaf, Sage Leaf, Butterbur Root, Distilled Water, Raw Honey, Grain Alcohol; Essential Oils of Lemon and Basil; Flower Essences of Holly, Crab Apple & Beech

Directions: 1-2 dropperful(s) as desired. During acute illness, take 1-2 tablespoons up to 3 x day.

Amanda’s interest in herbalism began at an early age but it wouldn’t be until 2010, when she moved to the Pacific Northwest, that her relationship with medicinal plants blossomed. The move from the east coast to the west coast would be more than a change of scenery, it brought her closer towards the wonderful world of herbalism. Ambitious to start learning she found a golden opportunity working at Portland’s first all organic herbal supplier, The Herb Shoppe. Her experience was even more fulfilling than she had hoped for, feeling invigorated Amanda knew this was a step in the right direction.
